Fluent Project Creators Unveil Data Observability Platform for Cloud

The creators and maintainers of Fluentd and Fluent Bit are launching Calyptia Cloud, a hosted solution for visualizing and optimizing Fluentd and Fluent Bit’s observability pipelines.

Calyptia Cloud provides a turnkey service for managing and visualizing open source Fluentd and Fluent Bit to relieve the burdens of conjuration and monitoring, allowing customers to focus on gaining the most insights and value out of their data pipelines in cloud native environments, according to the vendor.

Calyptia Cloud builds upon Fluentd and Fluent Bit to ensure that users are successful in the first mile of their observability journey, and scales to manage petabytes of data across thousands of servers per day.

It provides a unified, vendor neutral control plane for visualizing, managing and monitoring observability pipelines, so that customers can reliably collect, parse, filter, route and optimize first mile data.

Calyptia Cloud also gives enterprises running Fluentd and Fluent Bit the benefit of cost analysis, insights into speed and performance bottlenecks, and visualizations of fleets with real time metrics. 

Like its open source counterparts, Calyptia complements the cloud-native services such as Kubernetes, Prometheus, and data technologies including Splunk, Elasticsearch, Datadog, New Relic, Google Cloud services, AWS services, and many more.

Open source projects Fluentd and Fluent Bit are deployed millions of times per day in cloud and containerized environments.

Fluentd is a vendor-neutral data collector for building a Unified Logging Layer, and was the 6th project to graduate from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) after Kubernetes Prometheus, Envoy, CoreDNS and containerd.

Fluent Bit is an open source logging and metrics processor for collecting observability data from different sources, and is also a CNCF hosted project under the Fluentd umbrella.

Fluent Bit is used by Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and many other cloud service providers.

“We started Calyptia to help  users  get even greater value out of their Fluentd and Fluent Bit observability pipelines, and we’re encouraged by the thousands of early beta users who have already signed up for Calyptia Cloud,” said Eduardo Silva, CEO and co-founder of Calyptia.
